Melbourne – October 14, 2021 – The largest publicly marketed Australian early learning investment portfolio in recent history has sold to Home Consortium’s ASX listed HealthCo Healthcare & Wellness REIT (HCW) for $98 million following a highly competitive Expressions of Interest campaign.
The portfolio comprises 12 premium childcare centres located in Victoria and Western Australia developed by Allaf Property, Australia’s leading childcare centre and specialty assets developer. A broader partnership between Home Consortium and Allaf Property will also see a strong pipeline of new assets delivered.

HCW Chair, Joseph Carrozzi said, “We are pleased with these quality acquisitions, which are consistent with HCW’s investment strategy and will substantially increase the scale and diversification of the portfolio.
